The Trouble with Remakes

Labor of love, or quick cash-in? 

I'm sorry, but there's no way I can start this article while this 'Doctor Who' theme is playing. You're just going to have to wait.

Ah, such amazing orchestral work. Thank you for your patience. We now return to your regularly-scheduled article, sans sonic screwdriver-based interruptions:

One of the beautiful things about technology progressing is that we can see exactly where we came from - how ugly, misshapen and unpolished we were. A problem arises when we still like the stuff we've left behind, mostly because we're familiar with its trappings and pitfalls, and we adore it despite its silly shag carpeting. Some will simply refuse to use anything else, if just out of fear of using something frighteningly new. We cling to each concept that we create as long as possible before making the awkward last-minute leap into the arms of the next technological advance, hoping and praying we have the wherewithal to adjust to this terrifying turn of events.
